Summary: a film where three excellent actors get to shine, rosemary dewitt is simply radiant as an unexpected guest with a secret agenda. in the end, the writing does let this down as things resolve fairly neatly. but, it is worth it for the powerful performances.
Summary: A smart, well acted and surprisingly moving study of the knotty relationships between siblings, friends and lovers. Duplass, Blunt and DeWitt give the film an enormous amount of charm and heart, but I wish the ending had stayed a bit truer to the emotionally stunted nature of the characters instead...
Summary: The idea of this movie is very intriguing, but the execution was really bad. Much of the dialogue of this movie was obviously ad-lib, which can be great with the right kinds of actors, but these actors weren't that kind.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The ending's a bit too saccharine, but there's a great script and even better acting here, as Emily Blunt really gets to flex her muscles in this one and, in doing so, steals the movie. … Expand
Summary: Even though Your Sister's Sister is set mostly in the open air of a secluded area of a Puget Sound island, it feels a bit claustrophobic because of the very small cast.

Summary: Well, here is another movie that really is about nothing, says nothings and did nothing for me. Another movie that had about 15 minutes of shelf life but was expanded to 90 minutes and delivered nothing. Nothing is the word by which I will remember and recall this film. There is nothing to it.
Summary: My goodness, why is this movie getting reviews so high? Yes the setting is nice, cinematography is well done in general. By dialogs? Silly, empty at best. The acting is not convincing. I was waiting and waiting for the movie to get better. Time wasted, alas. Overall I find the movie just pathetic.
Summary: Wonderful acting performances throughout, and I love the setting and the music from Band of Horses. What I"m not a big fan of it this type of ending. Sure, it doesn't matter to this story what happens when the credits role. But it feels a little cheap to me.
Summary: "Lynn Shelton"...get used to hearing the name of the Seattle-based writer/director/producer/actor, because if her newest work is any indication, she's got a very bright filmmaking career ahead of her.
